By dreaming

Belated flowers

I was right in the middle of photographing my Flower Friday blip yesterday when the batteries in my camera died.  I had just recently changed them, so it came as a surprise.  Today, since I'd missed FF, I though I would blip a prized possession that has flowers on it. This casserole is a piece of hand-made North Carolina pottery, a gift to myself about 40 years ago when I was in graduate school at Duke University.  I fell in love with it when I saw it, with the lovely colors, shape and design.  I don't use it much - it's too precious.  But I love to look at it.

Today was my second day as a tutor at the library, and once again it was difficult and rewarding.  We had a shortage of tutors today, and a lot more students, so it was rather more chaotic.  I don't know how these newly immigrant people, who lack vocabulary and can't construct a reasonably correct English sentence, manage to navigate the processes of finding housing, applying for jobs, or interviewing for jobs.  I admire their courage - I don't think I could have done this myself when younger.  I'm hoping that we'll have the full complement of tutors next week, so that we can give people more individual attention.
